Name those plants

Name those plants and their uses if you know of any. I'm not sure if I have the correct names or not, I"m going on what my husband calls them, he is usually correct about their common local names, (Iowa).

I"m interested in making cordage with these plants or spinning them into threads, after I break them down into usable fibers. I also have Milkweed and Jerusalem Artichokes to work with, and a ton of Tiger Lilies. I'm sure none of the neighbors will mind my picking weeds in the alley after all they are constantly spraying them anyway!

I'm ready to get busy with my collaboration project, I've been collecting the parts to construct my 7 vessels, and have been journaling. And now that my wet studio table is cleaned off...

I'm loving reading your blog!
I can't help with the plants, but I'm wondering what are you going to use the tiger lilies for? Fiber? How is this done?
